  • Brother of serviceman James Goddard (17/67)

    Received with his brother James Goddard (17/67) 200 acres of land in the Government rehabilitation scheme. It was two miles from the Raetihi township and mostly standing in bush. The brothers struggled to make a modest living by selling small lots of timber and supplying milk from their few cows to Raetihi. They were forced to abandon the land during the recession late 1920's. AWMM
